Promoting Short Tail Keyword Via Long Tail Keyword
Posted 14 August 2011 - 05:13 AM
I am working on brand new sites and my clients gives a list of keywords that is highly competittive.If i promote a long tail keyword ,is it possible short tail keyword associated with long tail will promote itself like (mobile phone deals - short tail), (cheap mobile phone deals uk-long tail).if i promote "cheap mobile phone deals uk"," mobile phone deals" will promote itself.is it true or not?

But the more competitive a phrase is, the harder you need to work. If, in optimizing a page for the longer tail phrase, you use a title of "cheap mobile phone deals uk," you're arguably weakening your relevance for the short tail phrase, since you could have given the page a title of just "mobile phone deals" -- it's generally (albeit not universally) believed that you should put your keyword phrase as close to the beginning of the title as possible, and that extra words, even if they're not at the beginning, weaken that relevance somewhat.
On the other hand, you have to live in the real (internet) world. A new page without major branding and authority behind it just isn't going to show up for a highly competitive phrase. You may have to accept that and just target the long tail while you build up your brand recognition.
By the way, I hope the example you gave is just hypothetical. If not, this page is likely to compete with yours

Not necessarily. Have you examined how competitive the long-tail phrase is?

This is .. let's say new to me
are you saying that if I'm trying to rank for "search engine" , making my title "search engine website" will narrow my chances to rank for "search engine" ??

That's just an extrapolation from the generally accepted concepts that 1) the closer to the beginning of the title you put the keyword phrase, the better and 2) the keyword phrase plus a few other words is better than the keyword phrase plus a bunch of other words.
But please don't take that to mean that I'm recommending doing that. I'm a firm believer in both branding and the idea that a page can be optimized for more than one keyword phrase, not to mention many long-tail phrases that you're not necessarily even considering when you create the page.

This is a personal decision. I know some marketers targeting some super competitive keywords but they are extremely patient in their linking strategies. This is their business model and I guess it is one way of entering a super competitive niche if you want to play a waiting game.

A lot of truth here. I think people sometimes forget that the bulk of a website's search traffic (once the site is established) will usually come from a zillion different long-tail variations of a targeted keyword phrase, and NOT the keyword phrase itself, necessarily. It's pretty easy to spot this phenomenon in your Google Analytics -- "search sent you xx visitors via xx keyword phrases"
